Collaboration to Save the Seas: the open-source boat project Protei | Economie Responsable et Consommation Collaborative | Scoop.it

From opensource to open hardware, collaborative research, biomimicry and environmentalism – Cesar Harada brings all these emerging currents together as inventor, environmentalist and entrepreneur. Last October he gave his 9th OuiShare talk in Paris.

Just like in his numerous Ted Talks (video below), Cesar Harada took his audience on a journey to the realm of environmental solutions and revealed its challenges and opportunities in his OuiShare talk in October 2012. The son of a Franco-Japanese couple, he believes “that ocean currents, the wind and other naturally-occurring phenomenon can provide unique inspiration and novel solutions to mankind’s worst disasters, like oil spills and radioactive leaks.”
